The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency has launched a mini rocket to explore if aliens in the outer most reaches of gaikoku also speak in fluent English.
But officials aborted the mission within minutes of takeoff after Japan’s space agency stopped receiving data.
The mission failed to add to current data indicating that all forms of life outside the borders of Japan speak fluent English.
The SS-520 rocket had specific instructions to approach any discovered alien life forms by first asking if “they could become friends”.
Japan’s space agency was also aiming to gather information to affirm how perfectly complicated and difficult the Japanese language is for all gaikokujin.
